‘Therabath Paraffin Thermotherapy provides therapeutic relief of pain due to arthritis, joint inflammation, muscular stiffness, and injury, increases circulation to renew tissue, and moisturizes dry, cracked skin from the inside out, allowing you to get back to your active, hands-on lifestyle!’ https://therabath.com/
If you live with painful or stiff hands, a 10-minute paraffin treatment can dramatically improve your hand function. It is also a very relaxing treatment that can be a great way to start or end your session.
You may prefer to receive our full and undivided attention. Our direct one on one training consists of a quiet time and space to diligently work on your specific fitness goals. One of our experienced trainers will guide you through an informative and educational training session to fit your needs. This session can be beneficial for disease or injury specific education.
One of our favourite tools are walking poles by Urban Poling. They can be used for strengthening posture, improving balance, gait practice as well as cardiovascular benefits with our clients. Walking poles can also be a very fun way to add variety to a seated group class with music.
We encourage our clients to enjoy the beautiful walking trails Orillia offers, and adding walking poles is a very affordable way to increase your fitness level. We often run classes through the City of Orillia programs and recreation to ensure that you develop proper movement habits and get the most out of your poles! https://urbanpoling.com/

Here at Functional Fitness, we recognize that everyone is different and therefore requires a different fitness program. Each client’s program is tailored to their needs and is designed to help them achieve their goals.
Fitness programs are one hour in length and incorporate exercises to improve balance, strength, endurance, flexibility, and posture.
Results are achieved by using a variety of equipment that enables secure and proper functional movements. Some individuals require a very easy starting point, and others can tolerate intensity. The equipment enables the program to meet the individual at their level and gently improve as they train.
